Emsworth Square - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
I took this photo of St. Peter's Square in the centre of Emsworth on a deserted rainy day in June. Emsworth is a pretty little fishing village on the shores of Chichester Harbour. Once a small Saxon village, it became a busy port in the 18th and 19th centuries but more recently it has become known for its yacht harbour and as the home of the novelist P.G.Woodhouse.

Panorama of St Peter's Square, a quaint Saxon town on the south coast of England.
This English Channel town at the heart of British maritime history is set back in a sea inlet. The two most important trades in the town were oyster fishing - and brewing! Sailors did drink a lot of beer in the 30 pubs around the harbour in the 19th century.
Now a quiet seaside town with a harbour for small pleasure craft, yachts and sailboats, this little town is a great place to spend a weekend by the sea and explore the surrounding towns, Portsmouth, Southampton, Gosport, Chicester and the Isle of Wight.
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
